They have been written and are performed by Mike Peacock - who has over 20 years experience of performing in schools, teaching & running workshops for children. He is delighted to now be bringing these amazing stories to life in a brand new way!
“The Tales From the Miracle Book resource has an impressive visual knockabout style meaning these videos will engage pupils across the primary age range- with an incredibly versatile actor taking on a multitude of roles! This is a fun way into bible stories, providing a helpful stimulus for teachers and pupils exploring these texts.”
“Collective Worship was made much easier to plan! The videos were perfect for both KeyStages! Great resources. Thanks! 5 stars!”
“Engaging for all ages! The videos supported our children's understanding and engagement with RE. Some brilliant cross-curricula creative writing emerged as a result of the inspirational videos!”
“We used these as RE lessons and the children really enjoyed the films. We were doing a piece of writing about the Easter story and the films complimented it really well. The children (in year 3) thought it was really funny that all of the characters were played by one person and yet they could easily tell them all apart. Pupils were very engaged! 5/5 stars! ”
“An engaging, easy to understand RE series. The episodes were clear and informative and really captured pupil's imagination.”
“Tales From the Miracle Book was something different for our pupils to enjoy.Age-appropriate and entertaining! Thank you for all your efforts in putting this together. My year 5 & 6 pupils kept wanting to know what would happen next…!”
“The concepts were explored deeply but gave staff all the resources to lead these effectively. I think they were fantastic at up levelling Collective Worship and not just repeating the Easter story but instead dived into the theology behind the story at a level inline with the Understanding Christianity RE resource. ”
“Our pupils loved the Christmas series- they adored them! Pupils were completely enthralled!”
“I had high expectations for the ‘Easter Tales’ resources and they did not disappoint! Fun, engaging and well-received by all my students, the videos made an excellent springboard for cross-curricula activities too! I highly recommend!”
